to turn around our economy in the same way. end of that quote. but still that word harvest just sticks out, doesn't it? >> it does. and i have to say this tape wasn't surprising. it's interesting in some ways because it's not surprising. this is how private equity people talk. they look at companies not in the long run, you know, how to build something the way steve jobs built apple and how it can be part of a community and go on and on and create jobs and survive and thrive. they look at companies as sort of profit opportunities. we look for companies with hidden or potential value. we go in there, take a stake, try to manage them, and then harvest them for significant profits. now, as president obama has said, in some ways there's nothing wrong with that. newt gingrich called it vulture capital lic capitalism. it's looking at a way of creating jobs, being a stake holder in the community and thinking about the long run. that's not what you're look at. mitt romney was just talking the jargon of someone who does private equity and it's just not -- at the same time, though, in the last year

us that he can create jobs and knows the economy better because of his bain cap pal experience. >> but michelle, let me ask you, harvest companies -- buy companies a harvest them, where can you even find the most generous stretch you can, find job creation? >> it i unfortunate imagery and it's a rarafied field and this is the downside to the way romney has made his entire campaign, kind of a referendum on obama' private sector experience, he talks up a good game, you know, kind of inflating what any president would be able to do on the job creation front. so, you know, you run across something like this and of course people are going to jump on it becae romney himself has made job creation and his ability to do that central to his entire candidacy. >> but, david, let's be fair. he does care. he, romney, has some compassion in an interview with nbc, he showed how he cared by promoting romney re look at this. >> don't forget, i got everybody in my state assured 100% of the kids in our state has health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care than

, when you look at the "new york times" poll of ohio, it is not just likeability. the economy 6 points up over romney. on health care, 14 points above romney of ohio voters. national security, 12 points up. medicare, 16 points up. taxes, 10 point up. immigration, 5 points up. foreign policy, 13 points up. so he is outpolling him by a significant number and in most cases, double digits on substantive issues. >> look, this is not at this point just about who you want to sit down with for a casual evening. >> right. >> this is who you want sitting behind the desk in the oval office deciding whether to voucherize medicare, raise taxes on the middle class, privatize social security. and krystal is right, romney had to move far to the right but having watched that tape, that's where is he comfortable. that's the best and easiest performance that i've seen him give. of course, his worst performance, too. i think people have figured him out. i think the ryan pick helped him figure it out. we still have the debates, the romney campaign inexplicably is raising their expectations. it's not really in

and that is that bob dole in 1996 fought the good fight. but, look, the economy by then was booming. nobody really gave him a chance of winning. what is happening here is you have romney losing a race that everybody thought he was perfectly capable of winning. so if that is indeed what occurs, it's possible he doesn't even get the viagra ad in the end and may be cutting some ads for bain capital. >> michelle cottle and dana milbank, thank you for your time this evening. >> thanks. >> thanks. >>> coming up, paul ryan has come up with a brand-new reason to avoid giving details on the romney/ryan plan. >> you haven't given me the math. >> it would take me too long to go through the math. >> the math is hard defense. good luck with that. >>> plus, todd akin goes from bad to worse. new comments from mr. legitimate rape have made him the poster child of the gop radical anti-women agenda. >>> also, republicans care a lot about voter fraud unless they are the ones doing it. we're calling them out for gross hypocrisy. you're watching "politicsnation" on msnbc. oh no, not a migraine now. try this... bayer? this

for the rich and who is doing better with the economy and all sorts of social issues that they've raised, these on issues, independent candidates, they are losing on the issues. they are losing on the big picture policy items. >> right. look, you're talking about a republican party, as erin said, that has swung so far to the right that, you know, even if mitt romney tried to pivot to the middle, he would still be far and to the right. these are ideas that are radical, even, and the american people have shown time and time again that this is not what they want. paul ryan got booed at the aarp because of what he's proposed for appealing obama care and his own budget, i think, if they knew all of the things in it they would continue to boo. as someone said on the previous show, the personhood amendment, or maybe it was krystal, it went down in mississippi, probably the most conservative state in the union. this is a conservative idea that's been pushed and rejected. >> that's why it's just beyond the individual candidate, though they are going to try to just dump it all on romney, i think.

how he is is going to improve the economy to them, for them, and about taxes. give us a plan for balancing the budget that makes sense. you know, romney plans to cut taxes for the rich, enlarge the military, no military cuts, basically, and he says balance the budget. well, most economists have said the math just doesn't added a v looking for mitt romney to explain that. give us some straightforward answers that add up and make sense. >> now, erin, it is romney that's going to have to convince the american people because the president is the incumbent. so you assume romney's got to bring the fight to him. when you deal with the big picture economic issues and the economic issues that we're looking at today, how's he going to deal with it? let me give you an example. he was on "meet the press" and david gregory tried to press him on specifics. let me show you what happened. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> well, i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers are going to have fewer exemptions. >> the devil's in the details. the ang

obama's stewardship of the economy, and very quickly it became about his own economic ideology and it became a choice between paul ryan and mitt romney and president obama and vice president biden's very different visions of our economic future. and so we're going to see that teased out again in the debate. i mean, those poll numbers are pretty locked in six weeks out. >> governor ed endell and alicia menendez, thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> thanks, rev. >>> still ahead, eric cantor and the tea party were going to change washington. now they're hiding from their records. but we won't let them. that's next. [ male announcer ] how do you measure happiness? by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> still ahead, eric cantor and the gang just love pushing that right wing agenda of theirs. but voters, yeah, let's just say they didn't find it as charming. now the gop's running from their record. vo: tough
